About the Book
An extensively revised and thoroughly international approach to international commercial arbitration (focused on the New York Convention and UNCITRAL Model Law), while providing comparative examples drawn from state-to-state and investment arbitration.
- This new casebook is based upon Bornís treatise, International Commercial Arbitration: Commentary and Materials, 2E, one of the leading books in the field.
- An easy-to-use and accessible structure, organized chronologically to follow the course of an international arbitration (arbitration agreements, arbitral proceedings, arbitral awards)
- The book is thoroughly international, with materials focused on the New York Convention (and Inter-American Convention), and the UNCITRAL Model Law.
- Materials include judicial decisions and statutory materials drawn from all leading jurisdictions (European, Asian, Canadian and other) and arbitral awards under all leading institutional and other rules.
- Includes a thorough treatment of international arbitration in the United States, under the FAA.
- Though directed towards international commercial arbitration, the book also includes materials on investment arbitration and state-to-state arbitration, which are used as comparisons to commercial materials.
- The book is complemented by Bornís two-volume treatise, International Commercial Arbitration (2009) which provides more detailed commentary on issues covered in the casebook.
